Emilie Ullerup-Petersen (born 27 October 1984) is a Danish actress. She is best known for playing Ashley Magnus on the television series Sanctuary.

Early life and education[edit]

Ullerup was born in Copenhagen, Denmark as a child of a diplomatic family, daughter of Ove Ullerup-Petersen. As a diplomat's daughter she had to move very often and grew up all over the world. Her love to perform developed early. In every new school she played every school play or musical. After graduation from high school in Copenhagen in 2003, she moved to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and attended the Vancouver Film School, graduating in 2005.


Ullerup's first role was that of Julia Brynn on the remake television series of Battlestar Galactica in 2006, which aired on the Sci Fi Channel. She played Ashley Magnus in the first and second seasons of the television show Sanctuary until her character was written out. Her departure remained a topic of heated debate among fans, with many of them wanting her brought back in future episodes,[1] until the show was cancelled in 2012.

In 2016 Ullerup was cast as Bree O'Brian in Chesapeake Shores.[2]


Ullerup speaks Danish, English, Swedish,[citation needed] and Vietnamese.[citation needed] Her father held the title of Lord Chamberlain for the Danish Royal Family.[3] In 2008, she was found to have a benign but aggressive tumor wrapped around her spinal nerves. She underwent surgery to remove the tumor in 2009, at which time her coccyx and half of the sacrum of her pelvis was removed.[1] After about five months, she recovered enough to return to work.[4]
